The beaches of this neighborhood are among the most private on the island. A ten-minute walk along the beach or bike path will take you to Coligny Circle with its shops, fine and casual dining and markets.

Unique in design, this single-level home features a sunken living area and separate dining area. The dining area has vaulted ceilings and skylights and leads to the private pool. Enclosed off the dining area is the laundry room.

About Wayne Booker

Mary Jo and Wayne live in Dublin, Ohio. We have been married for 43 years and have 4 sons and 7 grandchildren. We originally lived in Philadelphia, but moved to Ohio in 1981. Wayne does mergers and acquisitions work and commercial real estate in addition to teaching at Franklin University. Mary Jo is a very attentive grandmother.

Wayne Booker purchased this house in 1998

Why Wayne Booker chose North Forest Beach

We have been vacationing on Hilton Head since 1984 and have never missed a year. We finally decided to invest in our own home in 1998 and have never regretted it. The island has a unique charm that puts you at rest as soon as you cross the bridge. Although there are lots of things to do and fantastic restaurants, the best part is to just sit by the pool or on the beach and read a good book. We love it hear even in the winter, where it may get cool, but never cold.

What makes this house unique

About 65% of our guests come either every year or every other year. Most of them feel like they own a part of it and we encourage them to feel that way. It is so convenient to have everything on one floor and to be only a few steps to the beach. It is also affordable for smaller groups or families who can't gather the 5 or 6 families to pay for one of the enormous mansions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Have been coming to HHI for many years and have stayed in many different places - but I think we have finally discovered our favorite place/HERE! We love your house, the location, and the pool. This was probably the coolest weather we have had here in years, so we were thankful for the heated pool. Hope to come back again in the future.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

What a great week in a beautiful house! The house was perfect for our family and extended family that came to visit, everyone had plenty of room. We made great use of the grill and cooked in several nights. The pool and proximity to the beach could not have been better! Wayne was great to work with and very responsive. We will be back next year!

Owner's Response: It is so nice to get such a nice review. Hilton Head is our second home and we love sharing our wonderful beach house since we spend most of our time with our beloved family in Ohio. It makes Mary Jo and I so happy to see that other families have also formed such lasting memories of their vacations at the beautiful beach on our favorite island.

Great place to just relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

A great property. Very clean and comfortable. Perfect for just relaxing. Plus, we like to cook in the evening, and the kitchen and dinning room, open to the living room, was very good for cooking and eating. The two master bedrooms were spacious. I loved the private backyard, with the indoor heated pool and spacious area to just lounge around, have a drink, take a nap, read a book. TV, DVD and video games, too! :-) Five adults vacationed here and found it quite nice. It is just a stones throw away from the beach, and by car there are sooooo many restaurants nearby. I would recommend this place to my family and friends!

Owner's Response: This is pretty typical of the response that we get from the surveys that are returned by every guest when they send back their emergency key. Sometimes they report problems to us that we are unaware of, and we view that as a positive because we know where to improve. One guest compained that the mattresses were hard. We really had no idea because we only sleep in one bedroom when we visit. But sure enough, he was right and we replaced all the mattresses and box springs (5) except for the comfy one which we had always used. We respond promptly to all problems and have trusted vendors to take care of them. We take it personally if a guest is unhappy, because this is our home, not a motel room.

Great location, small dated home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The owner was very responsive and helpful. The home is comfortable but in need of some updates. The kitchen is tiny yet well equipped. The location to the beach is wonderful.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate a positive review from our guests. We actually have chosen a classic beachy decorating style, so to some it may appear dated, but we regularly replace furniture and mattresses, while keeping the same appearance. Our kitchen is small, but on our family vacation we cook for 17 every night!

Close 2 perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The inside is a little small, but the backyard, pool, screened-in porch and proximity 2 the beach more than make up for that. Great for one or two families with a bunch of little kids!

great access to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Great location and the property was fantastic. Plenty of room for our family with 2 master bedrooms. Kitchen is small, but adequate. The screen porch was a great place for outdoor meals. Would come back to this location

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for a great review. We work hard to make sure that our guests have a wonderful vacation. Our kitchen is not gigantic, but we cook dinner for 17 or more every night on our family vacation. Two cooks at a time only or there is trouble!

Located on North Forest Beach on Hilton Head, the home is in a very private residential area. Access to the beach is very limited so it is never crowded. A short walk takes you to shopping and many different restaurants. The island area has many golf courses, tennis, a water park, fitness centers, two outlet malls, four star restaurants, and many national retailers. Grocery shopping is very economical and there are many choices if you choose to cook in. A one hour drive takes you to beautiful Savannah or Beaufort, both historical cities with beautiful antebellum homes. Two hours takes you to Charleston.
